Fillers for Smokers Lines

One of the best treatments for smokers’ lines is by the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are injectable material made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in our bodies. The function of hyaluronic acid naturally in the body is to maintain the skin’s volume and hydration. It is appropriate, therefore, that fillers made from such materials are the products used to plump up, or fill in hollows and creases in the skin in areas which lose fat or internal shape with normal ageing.

Fillers for Smokers Lines Treatments.

Smokers lines are caused, unsurprisingly, by the “pursed mouth” action of smoking, combined with exposure to the sun and the ageing process generally. These short close set vertical lines look a bit like a bar code, and become more pronounced as the lip loses volume with age. Smokers’ Lines respond very well to treatment through Botox injections, or to lip plumping and enhancement through lip fillers.

  • How are dermal fillers administered to treat smokers’ lines?

    After assessment by one of our qualified practitioners, dermal fillers for smokers lines are administered by way of small injections through a fine needle, into and around the area of the lip.

    This gives the doctor control over the volume of product, so as to create a natural – looking lip enhancement , smoothing out the smokers’ lines.

  • Is this Fillers for Smokers Lines treatment process painful?

    Some of the fillers used at the Clinic have inbuilt Lidocaine, an anaesthetic, to help numb the area treated so as to cause minimum discomfort.

    Other fillers do not, and so a topical anaesthetic is applied which has the same effect. The process is comparatively quick, and the smokers’ lines are minimised immediately.

  • How long does the effect of elimination of smokers’ lines last, and are there any side effects?

    Ordinarily, you will experience a lip area free of smokers’ lines for a period of about 6 months. Once the injections have been administered, the area may be a little swollen for a short time.

    Side effects are rare, as hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in humans, and over time, will be broken down and eliminated naturally through the body.

  • Who performs dermal fillers for smokers lines treatment?

    As with all Dermal Fillers treatments, Fillers for Smokers Lines treatment for men and women is performed by one of our qualified practitioners and supervised by Doctor Maria Gonzalez.
